A state Department of Transportation and Development crew uses a crane to lift a heavy beam back into place at the westbound approach to the La. 182 bridge on the Morgan City side. The beam, 13 feet 6 inches above the street, serves as a warning to tall vehicles. A truck hit the beam Dec. 8 and knocked the beam out of place.
